  2. 312mm Brake Upgrade

    Looking for the above if anyone has one?
  3. Which HT lead set to go for?

    Beru leads and ngk plugs is what im using...seems ok.
  4. Cams and Schrick intake

    Ive been thinking of going down the cams route as ive got a panel filter and milltek cat back.I was looking at the schimmel 263 cams an a map.Are the gains noticeable on the road?
  5. Clicking Relay

    I have replaced that but it was from euro car parts so maybe it was bad one.It only seems to do it on idle but is fine when driving??I will try changing it again just to make sure.
  6. So when I start the vr I get a relay that clicks (not sure what one yet) but it makes the car sound like there is a very small misfire.After a few seconds of driving the relay stops clicking and the car runs smooth..anyone know what relay would be causing this?

    After a couple of days of trial and error I have traced my problem down to 2 things.First problem was a faulty wire in the fuse box and then the second problem was a wire that will not stay in the loom plug that plugs into the ecu.With these two things sorted I should be back on the road

    No it has the standard vw alarm...with a scan it should point me in the right direction.Could it be the crank sensor??

    fuel system/pump all working correct etc..was getting a ticking noise from number 11 relay which is the horn.Now im thinking has the immobiliser be erased correct as maybe this is the reason it just turns over and the ticking is in theory the alarm going of just without the sound of the horn??Local garage is going to plug it in tomorrow to see if the reader picks up the ecu and to see if the key and ecu match (so im told).
  10. ECU HELP

    it will not start at all now..turns over and thats it.I had ago with some jump leads just incase the battery had gone flat but it still didnt fire.
  11. ECU HELP

    i have replaced the ecu relay and the fuel pump relay with no luck.i just get a ticking noise from under the steering wheel when it turns over.
  12. ECU HELP

    I had the immobiliser erased from my ecu on my 95 vr6 so i plugged it back in and left it sat on the scuttle to see if it started before i put it all back together.It started fine so i bolted it back to the body and put the scuttle panel back on.I got back in the car and it wouldnt start just turns over.I then took it back of the body and it started fine but i did notice i have a ticking noise from under the steering wheel where the fuses and relays are.So basically it does not start when the ecu is bolted to the body (where it should be) but it does start when it is just led in the scuttle area.Anyone know whats going on?
  13. Southampton/Portsmouth area meet

    Well that is a start
  14. Thought i would put the feelers out to see what local members are about and see if something can be arranged for the members down south.
  15. How long did it take you to find your pride and joy?

    I decided i wanted another so like you do i had a look on ebay etc.Searched nearest first and there it was at the top of the page,3 door tornado red with th lines.Sent the bloke a message to see where he was and it ended up being 2 roads down from where i live..
